To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Genti.Bmen — The attention of your honorable body 
is invited to an important decision rendered February 
14, 1936, by the Supreme Court of Illinois in three 
cases involving the city's ordinance which requires 
that commodities sold in load lots by weight and de- 
livered in the city be delivered vvith public weigh- 
masters' certificates of weight. 

Against the attack of nonresident truckers of coal 
who have for the past year persistently attempted to 
deliver truck load lots of coal on the Chicago market 
without certified weights the court unholds the rea- 
sonableness and validity of the ordinance and the 
enforcement activities of the city's weights and meas- 
ures department in protecting the inhabitants of 
Chicago against dishonest weights. 

Very truly yours,

lee, V. Ki'ank (iornian. Appellant. 

Mil. JusTici'', IlKimicK (ieiivei'ed the opinion of the 
court: 

In (he Municipal Court of Cliicaj^o separate pro- 
ceedings were instituted by the City ol' Chicagift 
against Isaac Waters, Marcus Hauge and Frank Gor- 
man for the violation of Section 2947 of the Revis(Ml 
Code of Chicago of 1931. The cases were separately 
tried on the same day without a jury, each defendant 
was found guilly and judgment was entered against 
him. In each case the trial judge certified that the 
validity of a municipal ordinance was involved and in 
his opinion the public interest required a direct ap- 
peal to this court. Each defendant perfected his ap- 
peal and the three cases were consolidated in this 
court for hearing. 

Section 29 47 of the ordinance in question provides, 
in substance, that every commodity sold in lot loads 
by weight delivered by truck within the city should 
be weighed by a city public weighmaster, and that his 
certificate of weight for each sucli lot should be de- 
livered by the driver or person in charge of the truck 
or other vehicle to the purchaser or consignee of the 
load at the time of delivery and before any of the 
commodity is removed from tlie vehicle. Section 362,3 
provides that the public weiglimaster's weight cer- 
tificate shall state, inter alia, tlie commodity w'eighed. 
the date, the name and address of the purchaser or 
consignee, the conveyance in which the commodity 
is loaded, and the tare weight and the net weight of 
the commodity contained in such vehicle. The sec- 
tion proceeds : "In no case is any public weighmaster 
to state in his certificate the tare weight of any vehi- 
cle until after he shall have weighed the vehicle in 
such manner as to secure the weight as specified 
herein," etc. 

In addition (o the attack made on the ordinance 
the defendants contend that the coal severally trucked 
by them was appropriated to the contract of pur- 
chase in Morris, Illinois, and then and there became 
the property of the buyer; that the ordinance has no 
application to the deliveries made by the defendants 
because the sale was made and completed without 
the corporate limits of the City of Chicago. 

We shall first take up the issue as to whether the 
sale w-as made and completed in Morris or Chicago. 
The evidence common to the three cases is that the 
appellants delivered coal in truck-load' lots to pur- 
chasers living in Chicago, none of which coal was 
weighed by a City of Chicago public weighmaster and 
no public weighmaster's certificate had been issued, as 
required by the provisions of the ordinance in ques- 
tion. The defendants are severally non-residents of 
Chicago, Hauge and Waters living at Morris and Gor- 
man at Blue Island. Each owns his own truck. Thecoal 
delivered was secured by each defendant from a coal 
company at Morris. The company has an independent 
coal dealer or broker residing in Chicago who sells 
the coal of the coal company. The company takes 



oi'ii((rs at limes dir(;ct from tin; customer', but thei'e 
is no (!vid(!n(;e in any of the cases to show that situ- 
ation ap|)li(!s to any sale luire. The usual custom of 
the husiiKiss is that a statement of the account is 
i'end(!i-(!d by I he, (;oal comiiany and deliv(;red to the 
ti-uck driver. No sepai'ate (diargcs is entered thereon 
for the trucking service;. The driver collects for thr; 
coal, dcuiucts his charges Cor trucking, and (dther f)ays 
th(; I'timainder to the broker in Chicago or the coal 
company at Moi'i'is, whichever is the more convenieni 
lor the driver. If i)ayment is made to tlu; coal com- 
[lany, it in turn pays the Chicago broker for his serv- 
ices. The coal is sohJ delivered in the i)urchaser's bin 
by the company. The truck driver receives his orders 
to load his truck and where to make delivery from the 
coal (company. None of the defendants ever had any 
transaction with the customer to whom delivery was 
made, was not employed by the customer to haul the 
coal, the customer gave no directions for the delivery 
of the coal and had no control over the vehicle in 
which the coal was transported. The details of the 
method of transportation and delivery were arranged 
by the coal company. The load trucked by Hauge was 
for three ditferent customers. He received the state- 
ment of the account from the Chicago broker, with 
the names of the customers and the quantity of coal 
to be delivered to each one. The defendant Waters 
received a statement from the coal company for the 
load of coal delivered by him. The statement showed 
a fiat price of $18, plus tax, for three tons, and showed 
the coal was purchased from a coal company which 
operated a mine at Morris. Gorman received his or- 
ders to deliver the coal from the mining company at 
iMorris. He did not testify. The statement for the 
coal delivered by him was offered in evidence and 
showed that the customer paid a flat price of $11.50, 
plus tax, for three tons of coal. 

It is the law that sales of personal property are re- 
garded as made at the place where the vendor shows 
his assent to the sale by delivering the property sold 
to the vendee's carrier, in the absence of any agree- 
ment or any special circumstances showing a con- 
trary situation. (111. State Bar. Stat. 1935, chap. 121a, 
sec. 40, par. 49; City of Chicago v. DiSalvo, 302 111. 
85; People v. Hill Top Mining Co., 300 id. 564.) The 
evidence here clearly shows that the carrier was 
neither selected nor designated by the purchaser, 
and that the purchaser, so far as he knew, was not 
paying any separate charge for the carriage of the 
coal. The price to him was net, delivered to him by 
the seller. The defendants were clearly the agents 
of the coal company, and each sale was made within 
the city limits of Chicago. 

There remains for decision the question of the 
validity of the ordinance. The defendants contend 
l.hat the effect of the above two sections of the ordi- 
nance is to require that coal brought into the City of 
Chicago by truck direct from the mine to the con- 
sumer in Chicago, although weighed at the mine on 
State-tested scales, be unloaded within the city limits 
of Chicago, so that the truck can there first be weighed 
empty by a public weighmaster and then re-loaded in 
order that both truck and coal can be re-weighed by 
the same public weighmaster for the purpose of mak- 
ing the certificate described in Section 3623 and re- 
quired by Section 2947, for the violation of which 
latter section the judgments rested. It is here urged 
that by reason of these requirements, as applied to 
the defendants, the ordinance is unreasonable, de- 
prives the defendants of the equal protection of the 
law and deprives them of liberty and due process of 
law, in violation of Section 1 of the fourteenth amend- 
ment to the Federal constitution and of Section 2 of 
Article 2 of the Illinois constitution.

This issue is one of first impression in this court, 
and we are not referred by either side to any decision 
where the precise question presented has been de- 
cided. The problem must therefore be resolved 
by the application of sound, fundamental legal prin- 
ciples. It is immaterial to the issues here that the 
coal in question was weighed outside of the City of 
Chicago on State-tested scales. The Weights and 
Measures act does not repeal, supersede or to any ex- 
tent modify the right of a municipality to adopt an 
ordinance regulating the method of ascertaining the 
correctness of weights and measures. The power of 
the city to adopt the particular ordinance before us, 
together with its reasonableness, and that it was not 
subject to attack as making a classification obnoxious 
to the constitutional provision, was definitely decided 
in City of Chicago v. Wisconsin Lime and Cement Co., 
312 111. 52'0. The attack here made on the validity 
and constitutionality of the ordinance is not the same, 
however, as was decided in that case. 

The defendants, among other cases, rely on City of 
Chicago V. Kautz, 313 111. 196, as supporting their side 
of the issue as to the unreasonableness of the ordi- 
nance. In that case the provision of the ordinance 
authorizing a city inspector or his deputies, without 
reasonable grounds for suspecting a violation of the 
ordinance, to compel a vehicle-driver en route to the 
place of delivery after his load has been weighed in 
conformity with the provisions of the ordinance, to 
re-weigh the load on scales selected by the inspector 
or his deputies, was held void as unreasonable. That 
provision did not affect the remainder of the ordi- 
nance. The case presented here does not grow out of 
an attempt to have any of the defendants here re- 
weigh his coal after having it once weighed over a 
Chicago public weighmaster's scales. The case is not 
authority, either helpful or persuasive, of the cor- 
rectness of the defendants' contention. 

In the determination of whether the ordinance is 
unreasonable and contrary to the grain of the consti- 
tutional provisions supra we must not be unmindful 
of those legal rules which have, survived the test of 
many years for the determination of the reasonable- 
ness and constitutionality of statutes and ordinances. 
Where the ordinance is within the grant of power 
conferred by the legislature the presumption is in 
favor of the validity of the ordinance, and the burden 
is always on the party attacking its legality to show 
such invalidity (Ferguson Coal Co. v. Thompson. 343 
111. 20: City of Chicago v. Mayer, 290 id. 142; City of 
Chicago V. Washingtonian Home, 289 id. 206; City of 
Chicago V. Shaw Livery Co., 258 id. 409') and the 
courts are without power to inquire into the wisdom 
of an ordinance or the motives that prompted its en- 
actment, with the possible exception that municipal 
ordinances may be impeached for fraud by persons 
injuriously affected thereby. (People v. Grand Trunk 
Western Railway Co., 232 111. 292) . Ordinances which 
regulate the methods of weighing coal and other bulky 
articles sold and delivered within the boundaries of 
the municipality are strictly within the police power. 
City of Chicago v. Wisconsin Lime and Cement Co.. 
supra; O'Maley v. Borough of Freeport, 96 Pa. St. 
24, 30; McQuillin on Mun. Ordinances, Sec. 485. 

The opportunity to defraud the consumer in the 
sale of coal in load lots is great and the consumer has 
no adequate way to protect himself against being 
cheated. The delivery of true weights of coal to the 
consumer is a matter clearly related to the public 
welfare and the city has the right to adopt reasonable 
ordinances therefor. (City of Chicago v. Wisconsin 
Lime and Cement Co., supra.) The court will take 
judicial notice of the fact that Morris is about sixty- 
two miles south and west of Chicago and that facili- 



ties are available for the transportation of coal by rail 
direct from Morris to Chicago. It is a matter of com- 
mon knowledge that enormous quantities of coal are 
moved by both rail and water to Chicago and there 
held in coal yards, bins or structures for the storage 
of coal until moved therefrom to the purchaser, and 
occasionally coal may be hauled from the car or vessel 
in vehicles direct to the consumer. As to coal thus^ 
transported and sold, an ordinary and natural way to 
regulate the weighing of the load would be to weigh 
the vehicle empty and then weigh the same vehicle 
after it is loaded for delivery to the vendee. The cir- 
cumstance that has brought about the controversy 
here is, after all, one of transportation. 

The defendants, who severally reside outside the 
City of Chicago, are hauling for a coal dealer whose 
source of supply is at Morris, Illinois, and who is sell- 
ing, either through itself or broker in Chicago, direct 
to citizens who reside in the City of Chicago. It is 
more convenient, and doubtless less expensive, for 
the particular dealer to weigh his truck, both empty 
and loaded, on the public weighmaster's scale at Mor- 
ris. This, however, is not a compliance with the ordi- 
nance. The defendants claim it is unreasonable to 
require them to unload their trucks after entering 
Chicago, weigh the truck empty and then re-load and 
make delivery, and that the coal is always damaged 
and there is always a loss of coal occasioned by the 
unloading and re-loading. There may be a loss. Such 
loss sustained by unloading and re-loading, however, 
is common to those dealers who maintain coal yards 
and bins in the City of Chicago for the sale of coal and 
who comply with the ordinance. The object of the 
ordinance was not to benefit persons engaged in the 
coal business, or to give one competing dealer an ad- 
vantage over another, or to enable some to comply 
with the ordinance readily and without inconvenience 
while others could not, l3ut its purpose was to en- 
deavor to give to the buyer of the coal, as nearly as 
practicable, honest weight. The defendants, non- 
residents of the City of Chicago, are asking for a prac- 
tice of weighing, as applied to the business done by 
them in the city, which under the ordinance here 
would not apply to those truckers living in the city 
and delivering coal from the local yards or local deal- 
ers in the city to the consumer. To recognize the 
demand of the defendants would be to discriminate 
between the local truckmen and dealers in Chicago 
in favor of non-residents. 

In State v. Nelson, 68 N. W. (Minn.) 1066. 34 L. R. A. 
318, the Supreme Court upheld the validity of an or- 
dinance of the City of Minneapolis which provided, 
in substance, that any person desiring to sell milk 
in the city be required to apply for a license, and 
before the license be issued the dairy herds of the 
applicant should be examined as to healthfulness, etc., 
and any tubercular cows eliminated. The ordinance 
was objected to as being extra-territorial. The ordi- 
nance was sustained upon the principle that the of- 
fense, under the ordinance, was the sale of milk with- 
out a license within the corporate limits of the city, 
and if the owner of the dairy did not wish to have his 
dairy subjected to the regulation he need not sell his 
milk in the city. In In re Vandine, 6 Pick. (Mass.") 
187, 17 Am. Dec. 351, an ordinance was declared valid 
which required garbage collectors operating in the 
city of Boston to be licensed, regardless of whether 
the licensee was a resident or non-resident of Boston. 
And so it was held in the case of City of Petersburg 
V. Cocke, 36 L. R. A. (Va.) 432, that a license tax im- 
posed on the right to practice law in a city is properly 
collectible from an attorney who practices law therein 
although he is not a resident of the city.

The rulinj; to be dfsduced from the authorities is, 
that where a city has enacted an ordinance within its 
charter or granted powers regulating a business, the 
non-residents who desire to follow such business 
within such municipality must conform to the re- 
quirements of th(> ordinance. If the defendant non- 
residents desire lo compete in the trucking business 
in the Chicago market they must submit to the re- 
quirements of the ordinance regulating the business. 
The facts, if there be such, that it may be necessary 
to establish coal yards in Chicago, ship by rail in car- 
load lots, unload from the car and deliver to the pur- 
chaser, or submit to an unloading and re-weighing 
of the coal in the event that coal moves into Chicago 
by trucks, are incidental problems, to be solved by 
the coal company in the event it desires to sell in the 
Chicago market. There is no discrimination made 
by the ordinance against the defendants. They have 
merely elected to do their business in a manner more 
convenient to them and different from the method 
prescribed by the ordinance. Instead of conforming 



to tlu! ordinance they are asking that they be ex- 
c(^i)ted from its terms. 

riic ordinance is not unreasonable and is not sus- 
c(!ptibl(i to th(! charges lodged against it of being a 
violation of the f)rovisions named of the State and 
Federal constitutions.

Recommendation for Submission to a Referendum Vote 

of the Question of the Continuation of Eastern 

Standard Time as Official Time for 

the City of Chlcaflo; Etc. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly. Mayor, submitted the fol- 
lowing communication: 

Office op the Mayor,] 
Chicago, March 11, 1936. 

To tJie Honorable, the City Council of Chicago: 

On November 4, 1935, the City Council adopted an 
ordinance which provides that Eastern Standard 
Time shall be the official time for operation of the 
city's offices, effective at 2 A. M., March 1, 1936. This 
ordinance, of course, is mandatory only insofar as 
municipal government offices are concerned, as is 
clearly shown by the following language in the ordi- 
nance : 



"From anrl after two (2:00) o'clock A. M. on 
Mai'cli 1, 1936, Eastei'n Standard 'J'ime shall be the 
olficial time within the City of Chicago lor the 
transa(;tion of all cily business. All higal or ofiicial 
pi'occedings of the City (Council and all ofiicial busi- 
ness of the (;ity shall l)e regiilafed as to time in 
accordance with the provisions of this section; 
and when, by orflinance, resolution or action of 
any municii)al ofiicer or body, an act must i)e per- 
formed ai, or within a [irescrihed time, it shall be 
performed according to the ofiicial lime as herein 
prescribed." 

The use of Eastern Standai'd I'iine. by the citizens 
of Chicago, in their business and social life, is purely 
voluntary on their part and while the change to the 
new time has been general throughout Ihe city, no 
one except city ofiicials has been compelled to make 
the change by the terms of the ordinance. 

I am one who believes that the public, insofar as 
possible, should decide questions of this kind and I 
believe that the members of the City Council share 
this view. I am advised, however, that under our 
State Law, the City Council lacks the power to place 
on the ballot such questions for referendum by the 
voters and that even if a referendum were held the 
result would be merely advisory and the City Coun- 
cil must still decide. In an opinion backed by the 
precedent of sixteen years or more, the Department 
of Law on October 28, 1935, pointed out that the only 
way that questions of public policy may be placed 
upon the ballot is by petition of a required number 
of registered voters. This is in accord with the Pub- 
lic Policy Act, which reads : 

"Par. 461. Petition — Not more than three ques- 
tions to be submitted at the same election.) Sec- 
tion 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of 
Hlinois, represented in the General Assembly: That 
on a written petition signed by twenty-five per 
cent of the registered voters of any incorporated 
town, village, city, township, county or school dis- 
trict; or ten per cent of the registered votes (vot- 
ers) of the State, it shall be the duty of the proper 
election officers in each case to submit any ques- 
tion of public policy so petitioned for, to the elec- 
tors of the incorporated town, village, city, 
to\Anship, county, school district or State, as the 
case may be, at any general or special election 
named in the petition: Provided, such petition is 
filed with the proper election officers, in each case 
not less than sixty (60) days before the date of the 
election at which the question or questions peti- 
tioned for are to be submitted. Not more than 
three propositions shall be submitted at the same 
election and such proposition shall be submitted in 
the order of its filing." 

This limitation placed by the State upon the power 
of the City Council in regard to the submission of 
questions of public policy was fully considered by the 
Department of Law over sixteen years ago (October 
2, 1919) with a conclusion in accord with that 
reached by the Department of Law on October 28, 
1935 — that is, that the City Council may not place on 
the ballot questions of this kind by its own volition 
and that such questions may get on the ballot only 
through petitions directed to the Board of Election 
Commissioners. 

Of course, the power of the City Council of Chicago 
to determine, by ordinance, how the ofiicial city 
clocks shall be regulated cannot be questioned. The 
action by the City Council in fixing Eastern Standard 
Time as the ofiicial city time was taken, I am in-

formed, in view of apparent popular demand, as tes- 
tified to by numerous prominent citizens and civic 
groups. 

For more than fifteen years, by ordinance, the City 
of Chicago has operated on the equivalent of Eastern 
Standard Time during spring, summer and fall 
months. That is, our clocks have been pushed ahead 
one hour annually, from April to September, the 
change in recent years beginning on the last Sunday 
in April and continuing until the last Sunday in Sep- 
tember. This was in accord with the so-called Day- 
light Saving plan which, for Chicago, meant changing 
from Central Time to Eastern Time. The present 
ordinance extends this system to include the entire 
year. 

The actual change in time became effective March 
1 while I was absent from the city on a short vaca- 
tion. On my return, I perceive that certain citizens 
have raised objections to the change. It is probable 
that the citizens who now object to the change did not 
effectively make known their views when this mat- 
ter was before the City Council, and hence the mem- 
bers of the Council could not have been aware of the 
extent of those views in relation to the numerous 
persons who appeared in favor of the change. In a 
city the size of Chicago, it is difficult at times to learn 
the true attitude of the majority of the people on 
questions of this type — and it is my conviction that 
the one sure way to learn their desires is through 
the use of the ballot box. 

Since November 4, 1935, when the time ordinance 
was adopted, several requests have been made for 
some action by the Council to recommend a refer- 
endum at the next general election. 

Because I believe thoroughly in the democratic 
way of determining these issues, I am proposing in 
this communication to initiate and provide the facili- 
ties for an all-city movement to bring this question 
to a vote by the people. This means it is necessary 
to obtain sufficient signatures of registered voters on 
petitions asking the Board of Election Commissioners 
to make possible a referendum at the general election 
in November. I invite and urge the members of the 
City Council to join with me in persuading the citi- 
zens to obtain for themselves such a referendum and 
co-operate fully with those who are at this time 
circulating petitions in this regard. 

Without going into the merits or demerits of hav- 
ing for Chicago either Eastern or Central time, I be- 
lieve it is again worth emphasizing that it is an 
unusually happy circumstance that the new time al- 
ready is in effect. We can thus expect a fair test. If 
a referendum had been held prior to the passage of 
the ordinance, assuming there had been a petition 
filed making such a referendum possible, many peo- 
ple would have had to base their vote on mere 
hearsay or opinion. Now, all the people will be 
able to express an opinion on the basis of actual 
experience. They knew what conditions were under 
the old time arrangement. By next November, they 
will know if they prefer the new standard of time, 
their preference being based upon an actual trial. 
The action by the City Council made this factual sit- 
uation possible, thus removing this question from the 
realm of untested opinion to the realm of actual 
experience. 

As one who has faith in the good sense and intelli- 
gence of our people, who believes that insofar as pos- 
sible the people themselves should determine all pub- 
lic questions and that the decision of the people, when 
fairly and properly arrived at, should govern public 



officials, I hope the City Council will join with me in 
urging the people to make possible a popular expres- 
sion of views on this subject. 

It is my suggestion that the people consider voting 
on propositions of this nature : 

Should the City of Chicago continue with the sys- 
tem of Daylight Saving Time as in the past, that is, 
operate under Eastern Standard Time from the last 
Sunday in April until the last Sunday in September? 
Or, should Eastern Standard Time be extended to 
include each month in the year? 

If the City Council agrees with the views expressed 
in this communication, I believe a resolution to that 
effect will be in order, and I am appending a draft 
of a suggested resolution. I respectfully urge your 
consideration of it. 



(Signed) 



Very truly yours, 

Edward J. 



Kelly, 
Mayor. 



Unanimous consent was given to permit action on the 
resolution submitted with the foregoing communication 
without reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Lindell moved to adopt the resolution. 

The motion prevailed unanimously. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The official time standard for operation 
of municipal offices of Chicago was changed from 
Central Standard Time to Eastern Standard Time, 
effective at 2 A. M., March 1, 1936, by an ordinance 
adopted by the City Council on November 4, 1935, said 
ordinance stating: 

"From and after two (2:00) o'clock A. M. on 
March 1, 1936, Eastern Standard Time shall be the 
official time within the City of Chicago for the 
transaction of all city business. All legal or official 
proceedings of the City Council and all official 
business of the city shall be regulated as to time 
in accordance with the provisions of this section; 
and when, by ordinance, resolution or action of any 
municipal officer or body, an act must be performed 
at or within a prescribed time, it shall be per- 
formed according to the official time as herein 
prescribed."; 

and 

Whereas, While said ordinance is mandatory only 
for city government offices, the citizens generally and 
. through their own volition also have changed to East- 
ern Standard Time; and 

Whereas, Now that the new time standard is in 
effect and general use, the citizens of Chicago for the 
first time will have actual experience as a basis for 
determining if they have a preference for either 
Eastern Standard Time or Central Standard Time 
during the entire year; and 

Whereas, Although said ordinance was adopted 
after numerous prominent citizens and civic groups 
expressed a desire for the change in time, certain 
other citizens have voiced objections; and 

Whereas, State Law of Illinois prevented and now 
prevents the City Council by its own order from plac- 
ing on the ballot this question for an expression of 
opinion by the people, it being a statutory provision 
that a question of public policy may be presented to

Whereas, The City Council believes that a fair test

the City Council that the citizens of Chicago be en-

Should the City of Chicago continue with the sys- 
tem of Daylight Saving Time, as in the past; that 
is, operate under Eastern Standard Time from the 
last Sunday in April until the last Sunday in Sep- 
tember? or, Should Eastern Standard Time be 
extended to include each month in the year? 

And Be It Further Resolved, That the city govern- 
ment furnish every possible means of expediting ef- 
forts to obtain the proper number of signatures so as 
to compel the Board of Election Commissioners to 
make possible such a referendum in order that this 
Council may be advised as to the sentiments of the 
majority of citizens after they have tested Eastern 
Standard Time. 



Designation of "Chicago's Boy Patrol Week" (March 21) 
to April 3, 1936). 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the fol- 
lowing communication and proclamation, which were 
ordered published and placed on file: 

Office op the Mayor,] 
Chicago, March 11, igSG.f 

To the Honorable, the City Council of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The members of your honorable body 
are aware of the efforts that have been made, with 
your cooperation, to reduce the number of trafTic 
accidents in Chicago. As a result of the activity of 
the Keep Chicago Safe Committee, whicn your body 
created as an ofilcial agency of the city, and other 
organizations interested in safety, motor fatalities in 
Chicago have been reduced twenty-five per cent. 



Among our major concerns in the problem of traf- 
fic safety, has been the safety of the school children 
of our city as they go to and from school, and the 
Keep Chicago Safe Committee has been diligent in 
efror(,s to help prevent accidents involving the school 
children. 

However, we should not overlook the efforts in this 
r(^Kard by children themselves, in particular the 
splemiid Chicago school boys, both public and paro- 
(•hial, who act as traffic patrols, directing traffic near 
the school houses. 

Because I believe that these boy patrols should be 
shown in some especially appropriate manner that 
Chicago appreciates the work they are doing, to en- 
courage them in their important work and to dra- 
matically call attention of the citizens at large to the 
service that these fine young Chicagoans are per- 
forming, I am issuing a proclamation setting aside 
the period from March twenty-ninth, 1936 to April 
third, 1936 as "Chicago's Boy Patrol Week," a copy 
of which I herewith transmit to your honorable body. 

It is my belief that such an observance as is called 
for in this proclamation, not only will show Chicago's 
gratitude to these boys, but also will further our work 
in minimizing traffic accidents, a matter particularly 
important at this time since the approach of spring 
means that motor traffic will become increasingly 
heavy in our city. I am confident that the City Coun- 
cil and the public at large will desire to cooperate in 
this observance to the end that it may be made a 
truly representative occasion on the part of every 
community and all groups in our city. 



Very truly yours, 



(Signed) 



Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 



A Proclamation 

Whereas, traffic safety presents one of the gravest 
problems of city life with motor accidents each year 
taking a tremendous toll in life and limb; and 

Whereas, the City of Chicago, officially and through 
civic groups, for the last three years has been don- 
ducting an intensive campaign to make the streets of 
Chicago safe for our citizens, and for our children in 
particular, this activity already having reduced fatali- 
ties twenty-five per cent; and 

Whereas, the safety of Chicago's school children, 
both public and parochial, as they go to and from 
their schools is of major concern to the city adminis- 
tration and all persons interested in traffic safety; 
and 

Whereas, an important factor in keeping down 
traffic accidents involving our school children has 
been the volunteer work of the boy traffic patrols, 
the vigilant young Chicagoans who direct traffic near 
the schools so that their schoolmates may cross the 
streets safely; and 

Whereas, Chicago feels a deep sense of gratitude 
to these boy patrols, sensing that they not only are 
performing distinguished civic service, but also act 
as an inspiration to other children as well as to adults 
to observe safety rules; and 

Whereas, it is fitting that the City of Chicago 
should in some appropriate fashion pay tribute to 
these young Chicagoans in order to show our grati- 
tude and to encourage them in their efforts; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of Chi- 
cago, do hereby proclaim the period from March 



March 11, 1936 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1457 



twenty-ninth, 1936 to April third, 1936 as "Chicago's 
Boy Patrol Week" in the City of Chicago, and I urgq 
all civic groups and organizations interested in traf- 
fic safety, and representative organizations of every 
community within our city, to hold, wherever pos- 
sible, appropriate observances for the double pur- 
pose of showing our gratitude to the boy patrols and 
of spreading further the lessons of traffic safety, and 
for the entire city to join in an all-city observance 
to be held in the Chicago Stadium on the evening of 
April third, 1936, as a climax to the week. 



Endorsement of the Designation of "Chicago's Boy Patrol 

Week" and Request for a City-Wide Observance 

Thereof. 

By unanimous consent Alderman Arvey thereupon 
presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, His Honor, Mayor Edward J. Kelly, in 
connection with his efforts to make Chicago's streets 
the safest in the world, has proclaimed the period 
from 'March twenty-ninth, 1936 to April third, 1936, 
as "Chicago's Boy Patrol Week" as a city-wide trib- 
ute to Chicago's school boy traffic patrols, both public 
and parochial; and 

Whereas, The members of the City Council be- 
lieve that such an observance will add mightily to 
the educational program being conducted by the Keep 
Chicago Safe Committee and other groups interested 
in traffic safety in Chicago, not only in emphasizing 
the importance of the boy patrols, but also in dra- 
matically calling attention to our citizens the impor- 
tance of cooperating to prevent traffic accidents; and 

Whereas, It is especially fitting that such an ob- 
servance be held at the time specified because the 
traffic on our streets is now becoming increasingly 
heavy due to the approach of spring; and 

Whereas, Such an observance also will serve to 
inform the world of the steps being taken in Chicago 
to make our streets and highways safe for motorists 
and pedestrians, effectively revealing how motor 
fatalities have been reduced twenty-five per cent 
since the organization of the Keep Chicago Safe 
movement; and 

Whereas, Such steps to promote traffic safety not 
only tend to save life and limb, but also help busi- 
ness in Chicago by encouraging tourists and other 
visitors to come to our city with a feeling of security 
from traffic mishaps, it being well known that unsafe 
streets act as a deterrent to such visitors; 

Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the City Council 
of Chicago does hereby endorse and approve the proc-

West 83rd St. from 
South Western Ave. to

Mr. Peter J. Brady, City Clerk, Chicago, Illinois. 

Dear Sir — We have received the resolution passed 
by the City Council on January 9, 1936 appropriating 
$24,658.19 from the Motor Fuel Tax allotment for 
the purchase of right of way on Section 83rd St. — 
0303— CS. 



Our investigation of the proposed improvement 
does not show its necessity at the present time, as 
this area is satisfactorily served by 79th street and 
87th street. Also, the information we have at hand 
indicales that 83rd street is not opened up east of 
Western avenue, and that a majority of the western 
location is through an unimproved area. 

For the above reasons, we do not feel justified in 
approving the above resolution at this time.

Transfer of Surpluses in Sundry Bridge Bond Funds to 

the "Corporate Purposes Fund — Bond Surplus 

Account" (Amendment). 

The City Clerk presented the following communica-

Chicago, February 26, 1936.J 

Subject: Corporate Fund Bond Surplus Account. 
Bridges : N. State street. 

To the Honorable Mayor, and City Council, City of 
Chicago: 

Dear Sirs — There are transmitted herewith, in 
duplicate, copies of a proposed ordinance amending 



an ordinance passed August 2, 1935, appearing on 
page 511 of the Journal of Proceedings of the City 
Council of that date, which provided for the transfer 
of surpluses in sundry bridge bond funds to the Cor- 
porate Purposes Fund. 

The Corporation Counsel has held that the legisla- 
tive act authorizing the transfer of surplus bond 
funds for other corporate purposes provided only for 
the transfer of a surplus and not merely an estimated 
surplus in a bridge bond fund for a project on which 
no work was done. 

Since no work has yet been done on the North 
State Street Bridge, the surplus relating to the North 
State Street Bridge Bond Fund, referred to in the 
ordinance of August 2, 1935, is merely an estimated 
surplus and cannot under the legislative act be trans- 
ferred to the Corporate Fund. Therefore, the attached 
ordinance, approved as to form by the Corporation 
Counsel, amending the previous ordinance by elimi- 
nating all reference to the North State Street Bridge 
Bond Fund, is herewith submitted with my recom- 
mendation for its passage.

State Street Bridge Bond Fund was never affected 
and was by the annual appropriation bill for 1936

ficiary, leaving one or more beneficiaries surviving, 
the trust fund remaining shall be re-allocated for

The trustee bank shall first determine the 
amount of the original award, in accordance with 
sub-sections (1), to (27) inclusive of this section, 
which would have been made to the surviving 
beneficiary or beneficiaries had the deceased 
Ijeneficiary not been a beneficiary upon the date 
of the original award. If the award thus deter- 
mined is less than the original award made, the 
trustee bank shall ascertain the amount to be held 
by it for the benefit of the surviving beneficiary 
or beneficiaries by deducting from the amount of 
the redetermined award the total amount actually 
paid to or for the benefit of the surviving bene- 
ficiary or beneficiaries. If the balance actually re- 
maining in the trust (taken at its market value) 
is in excess of the net balance (taken at face value) 
found to be due to surviving beneficiary or bene- 
ficiaries, such excess, after deducting the expenses 
of the last illness and the funeral of the deceased 
beneficiary, shall revert to the City of Chicago and 
be credited to the general corporate fund by the 
comptroller. If the balance actually remaining in 
the trust (taken at its market value) is less than 
the amount (taken at face value) found due to 
the surviving beneficiary or beneficiaries under 
the redetermined award, as aforesaid, the entire 
balance remaining in the trust shall be held by 
the trustee bank for the use and benefit of the sur- 
viving beneficiary or beneficiaries in accordance 
with the terms hereof. It is the intention of this 
section that upon reallocation of any award, as 
aforesaid, any loss to the trust arising from the 
depreciation in value of any assets held thereunder 
shall fall upon the reversionary interest of the City 
of Chicago and not upon the remaining beneficiaries 
of the trust. In the event of the death of the last 
surviving beneficiary or of a sole beneficiary, all 
funeral expenses and medical expenses incident to 
the last illness of the deceased beneficiary shall be 
paid by the trustee bank and if, after payment of 
such medical and funeral expenses, any portion of 
the award remains unexpended the trust shall ter- 
minate and such unexpended portion shall be re- 
turned to the City of Chicago by the trustee bank 
and shall revert and be credited to the general cor- 
porate fund by the comptroller. 

(30) In the event of the marriage of any bene- 
ficiary or in the event that any minor beneficiary 
other than the widow of the deceased policeman or 
fireman shall attain the age of twenty-one years 
and shall be under no mental or physical disability 
preventing self-support and shall not be attending 
an accredited school or college, and there are other 
beneficiaries remaining, the funds remaining in the 
hands of the trustee bank shall be reallocated for 
the use and benefit of the other beneficiary or bene- 
ficiaries in the following manner : 

The trustee bank shall first determine the amount 
of the original award, in accordance with sub- 
sections (1) to (27) inclusive of this section, which 
would have been made to the remaining beneficiary 
or beneficiaries had such former beneficiary not 
been a beneficiary upon the date of the original

.- award. If the award thus determined is less than 
the original award made, the trustee bank shall 
ascertain the amount to be held by it for the bene- 
fit of the remaining beneficiary or beneficiaries by 
deducting from the amount of the redetermined 
award the total amount actually paid to or for the 
benefit of the remaining beneficiary or benefici- 
aries. If the balance actually remaining in the trust 
(taken at its market value) is in excess of the net 
balance (taken at face value) found to be due to 
remaining beneficiary or beneficiaries, such excess 
shall revert to the City of Chicago and be credited 
to the general corporate fund by the comptroller. 
If the balance actually remaining in the trust (taken 
at its market value) is less than the amount (taken 
at face value) found due to the remaining bene- 
ficiary or beneficiaries, as aforesaid the entire bal- 
ance remaining in the trust shall be held by the 
trustee bank for the use and benefit of the remain- 
ing beneficiary or beneficiaries in accordance with 
the terms hereof. It is the intention of this section 
that upon reallocation of any award, as aforesaid, 
any loss to the trust arising from the depreciation 
in value of any assets held thereunder shall fall 
upon the reversionary interest of the City of Chi- 
cago and not upon the remaining beneficiaries of 
the trust. In the event of the marriage of the last 
beneficiary of any trust fund, or in the event that 
the last remaining beneficiary is a minor and shall 
attain the age of twenty-one years and shall be 
under no mental or physical disability preventing 
self-support, the trust funds remaining in the 
hands of the trustee bank shall revert to the City 
of Chicago and be credited to the general corporate 
fund by the comptroller. The purpose of this pro- 
vision is to encourage the said minor dependents 
to seek and secure educational advantages in the 
several trades, industrial lines or professions. 

(31) It shall be the duty of the trustee bank 
designated from time to time to invest all moneys 
entrusted to it and actually paid to said trustee 
bank subsequent to June 28, 1933, whether or not 
appropriated or awarded prior to said date, in full

Dipection for a Report on the Powers of the City to Pre- 
scribe Certain Streets for Use of Passenger and 
Freight Trucks, andl the Levying of a Tax 
for Such Operation. 

Alderman Kiley presented the following resolution: 



Whereas, The unlimited use of Chicago streets by 
trucks and buses of trans-continental, inter-State, in- 
ter-City and intra-City common or contract carriers 
of persons and/or freight presents an additional im- 
portant factor to be met in Chicago's drive for safety; 
and 

Whereas, Such unlimited use is destructive of 
streets built principally from application of vehicle 
tax funds, which tax is paid, mostly, by owners of 
private passenger vehicles; and 

Whereas, It is unfair to such owners of private 
passenger vehicles to permit such unlimited use of 
City streets to such carriers without compensation; 
and 

Whereas, The mushroom growth of the business 
above referred to will certainly result in State legis- 
lation controlling to reasonable extent the operation 
of said trucks and buses within the State; and 

Whereas, Such rapid growth (of business) and 
unlimited use (of streets) referred to, has resolved 
itself into conversion of public thoroughfares, within 
and without limits of cities, into private rights of 
way, upon which carriers operate huge tractor-trail- 
ers and buses carrying carloads of freight and pas- 
sengers, with little or no restriction; and 

Whereas, It behooves the City of Chicago to pre- 
vent, so far as is possible, encroachments upon its 
self-governing powers; 

Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the Corporation 
' Counsel be, and he is hereby directed to inquire into 
this matter forthwith, and determine what jurisdic- 
tion, if any, the Mayor and/or City Council has over 
Chicago streets, so far as it concerns correcting the 
abuses set forth in the preamble hereof; and 

Be it Further Resolved, That a report of such in- 
quiry be given the City Council as soon as possible, 
giving particular attention to the powers of the Mayor 
and City Council, to prescribe certain streets over 
which such trucks and buses may be operated and 
to levy tax for such operation. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on said 
resolution without reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Kiley moved to adopt the resolution. 

The motion prevailed.

"Whoroas, John Kosinski, owner, filed, March 13, 
1935, an api)lication under Uio zoning ordinance to 
pcrniil, in an aparLnuniL district, the remodeling of 
a one-sLory and basement dwelling and tiie estab- 
lishment and operation of a tavern on premises at 
2315 W. 18th place; and 

Whereas, The decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered April 20, 1935, reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed improve- 
ment does not conform with requirements of 
zoning ordinance'; 

and 

Whereas, The proposed use is to be located in an 
apartment district and would violate the strict 
letter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, A public hearing was held on this ap- 
plication by the Board of Appeals at its regular 
meeting held on April 15, 1935, after due public 
notice by publication in the Chicago Journal of 
Commerce on March 18, 1935; and

law in cases where there are practical difficulties 
or particular hardship in the way of carrying out 
the strict letter of the zoning ordinance to hear and 
recommend variations of such ordinance to the City 
Council under rules provided in such ordinance; 

and 

Whereas, The Board of Appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises, finds that 
in this case no facts were presented which, in its 
judgment, would justify it in recommending a vari- 
ation of the zoning ordinance. 

Resolved, That the Board of Appeals does hereby 
recommend to the City Council that the application 
be denied"; 

and 

Whereas, Thereupon the Committee on Buildings 
and Zoning made an investigation and found that a 
strict enforcement of the "zoning ordinance" in this 
case would work a hardship; therefore 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

SEcrriON 1. That a variation of the provisions and 
regulations of the Zoning Ordinance of the City of 
Chicago be and the same is hereby allowed to said

eration of a tavern on the premises at No. 2315 W. 
18th place.

permit for the remodeling of a one-story and base- 
ment dwelling and the establishment and operation of

adopted by the Board of Appeals concerning an appli- 
cation to i)ermit a variation from^ the requirements of

Meyer, Schulz, Massen, Keenan, Quinn — 42. 

Nays — None. 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Whereas, On December 2, 1935, the Board of Ap- 
peals adopted the following resolution: 

"Whereas, Samuel Bailis, for Kraus and Bortze, 
owners, filed, October 21, 1935, an application under 
the zoning ordinance to permit, in a commercial 
district nearer than 125 ft. to an apartment dis- 
trict, the establishment and operation of the whole- 
sale manufacture and distribution of sour cream in 
an existing one-story building on premises at 4263 
Elston avenue; and 

Whereas, The decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered September 30, 1935, reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed improve- 
ment does not conform with requirements of 
zoning ordinance'; 

and 

Whereas, The proposed use is to be located in a 
commercial district nearer than 125 ft. to an apart- 
ment district and would violate the strict letter of 
the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, A public hearing was held on this ap- 
plication by the Board of Appeals at its regular 
meeting held on December 2, 1935, after due public 
notice by publication in the Chicago Journal of 
Commerce on November 16, 1935; and 

Whereas, The Board of Appeals is authorized 
by law in cases where there are practical difficulties 
or particular hardship in the way of carrying out 
the strict letter of the zoning ordinance to hear 
and recommend variations of such ordinance to the 
City Council under rules provided in such ordi- 
nances; and 

Whereas, In the rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance relating to the authority of the Board 
of Appeals to recommend variations to the City 
Council there appears the following rule in Section 
28, paragraph (8) : 

'Permission to maintain a * * ' C3 use any- 
where in a Commercial District * * * which

otherwise would not be permitted by this ordi- 
nance, where clearly the appropriate use of 
neighboring property is not injured thereby'; 

and 

Whereas, The Board of Appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties 
and being fully advised in the premises, finds there 
are other similar non-conforming uses in the block; 
that the proposed use will be so conducted that 
clearly the appropriate use of neighboring property 
will not be injured thereby; that there are practical 
difficulties and particular hardship in the way of 
carrying out the strict letter of the zoning ordi- 
nance and that the applicant should be granted 
relief on condition that the proposed use is to be 
limited to the wholesale manufacture and distri- 
bution of sour cream; that the machinery to be 
installed for the operation of the proposed use is 
to be one viscalizor and a vat; that all operations 
are to carried on within the building; that no 
operation of the business involving the trucking 
or hauling of materials or products and no opera- 
tion involving processes of a nature such as to 
disturb the occupants of adjoining residence and 
apartment districts shall be carried on between the 
hours of 8 P. M. and 6 A. M.; that a sketch showing 
the layout of the proposed plant shall be approved 
by the Board of Appeals before a permit is issued 
herein; that all permits necessary for the estab- 
lishment of the proposed use shall be obtained 
within three months after the passage of an ordi- 
nance by the City Council; and that all other ordi- 
nances of the City of Chicago shall be complied 
with; and 

Whereas, The Board further finds that the prem- 
ises are located in a commercial district nearer than 
125 ft. to an apartment district; that the proposed 
use will be so conducted that clearly the appro- 
priate use of neighboring property will not be 
injured thereby; that there is particular hardship 
in this case and that the variation may be made 
consistently in harmony with the intent and pur- 
pose of the zoning regulations and would not be 
detrimental to the public welfare, safety or health, 

Resolved, That the Board of Appeals by virtue 
of the authority conferred upon it does hereby rec- 
ommend that the City Council enact the following 
ordinance : 

'Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago :

Request for tlie Enactment of State Legislation to 

Prohibit the Sale in Illinois of American Flags 

Manufactured Outside the United States. 

Alderman Cronson presented the following resolution: 



March 18, 1936 



NEW BUSINESS— BY WARDS 



1525 



Whereas, Conditions of unemployment in the State 
of Illinois are still an acute problem and are par- 
ticularly vexatious to Illinois comprised as it is of 
many industrial Centers; and 

Whereas, Much of this unemployment is due to 
the fact that while we have idle factories and mills 
much of the finished and unfinished products which 
they are equipped to turn out are being imported into 
this country and shipped into Illinois; and 

Whereas, A heavy tax burden is imposed upon 
all citizens of Illinois who have patriotically made 
their contribution in federal taxes to relieve in some 
portion this unemployment situation; and 

Whereas, Available information discloses that 
American purchases from Japan have increased 28% 
during the last fiscal year and during the same period 
Japanese purchases in American markets have de- 
creased nearly 4 % ; and 

Whereas, The sentiment of every man, woman and 
child in Illinois is one of pride and glory at the sight 
of the American flag. It has been maintained in the 
forefront of all national emblems of the world in 
great part through the efforts of our citizens who 
toil in our factories and who need work. And the 
American flag was meant not only to epitomize his- 
toric achievement but to be emblematic of a land 
of happy homes and happy people where the will to 
work found response in our opportunities. It is a 
travesty to know that more than a majority of all 
American flags sold in the United States are manu- 
factured in Japan. It is a contradiction of every- 
thing the American flag represents to realize that 
while our American workingmen and workingwomen 
may be called upon to make sacrifices for the Ameri- 
can flag, our working men and our working women 
are deprived by economic conditions of the privilege 
of making every American flag. 

Noiv, Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago, in session assembled, does 
hereby petition the general assembly at Springfield, 
Illinois, to enact at its next session, legislation pro- 
hibiting the sale within the State of Illinois of Ameri- 
can flags unless they be made in America and by 
American working men and working women. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on said 
resolution without reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Cronson moved to adopt said resolution. 

The motion prevailed. 



FIFTH WARD.

The (jity Clerk presented the following- report, whic-h 
was ordered published and placed on file: 

Public Vehicle License Commission, | 
Chicago, March 12, 1936.J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In compliance with the provisions of 
Section 580 of the Revised Chicago Code of 1931, as 
amended June 7th, 1934, page 2381 of the Council 
Proceedings of that date, I respectfully submit here- 
with a report of the activities of the Public Vehicle 
License Commission during the year ending Decem- 
ber 31st, 1935: 

Fees received for the issuance of taxicab 

licenses, 4107 issued at $5.00 each. . .$ 20,535.00 

Fees received for the issuance of Drivers

$3.00 each 16,707.00 

Fees received for the issuance of Sight- 
seeing Bus Licenses, 17 issued for the 
3Fd quarter and 5 issued for the 4th 
quarter, a total of 22 issued at $50.00 
per quarter 1,100.00 

Fees received for the issuance of Bus 
Licenses, 3 issued at $10.00 each 30.00 

Fees received for the inspection of taxi- 
meter on taxicabs, 8178 inspections 
made at $2.50 each 20,445.00 

Compensation received for use of the 
streets by taxicabs at the rate of 
$12.50 per cab per quarter on 16,366 
taxicabs 204,575.00 

Total $271,357.00 

Number of complaints investigated in con- 
nection with the operation of public pas- 
senger vehicles and drivers 127 

Number of taxicab and driver licenses revoked 
by His Honor, the Mayor, upon the recom- 
mendation of the undersigned 13

nances governing the operation of public

Chauffeurs applications rejected for cause. ... 36 

An investigation by this Commission has disclosed 
the fact that there are about 1200 automobiles being 
operated in Chicago for hire, commonly known as 
livery and funeral cars. These cars use the city 
streets in connection with their operation and do 
not come under any City or State supervision or 
control. They operate out of public garages on tele- 
phone calls and their cars are at the service of any- 
one desiring to hire them, either on an hourly or 
trip rate. They advertise in the daily press, offering 
taxicab service at rates lower than the rate of fare 
established by ordinance. This operation is in direct 
competition to the taxicab business. Taxicabs are 
required to be equipped with taximeters and are 
governed by an ordinance designating the rate of 
fare to be charged. Taxicab operators are required 
to pay to the City $50.00 per annum per cab for 
the use of the streets and public ways, which is in 
addition to a taxicab license fee of $5.00 and taxi- 
meter inspection fee of $5.O0i per annum, whereas 
these livery cars are permitted to operate without 
the payment of any license or compensation fee what- 
ever, other than the City and State licenses required 
on all automobiles. At the present time the City has 
no authority to regulate and control this type of 
operation under the ordinance. The licensing by the 
City of these livery and funeral cars at an annual fee 
of $25.00 would provide the City with approximately 
$30,000 revenue per annum, which, in addition to 
the licensing of the chauffeurs of these cars, ap- 
proximately 1000 at $5.00 per year, would provide a 
total revenue of $35,000. 

There now appears in the Revised Code of 1931, 
Sections 2143 to 2i57, governing the licensing and 
regulation of public carts. These sections are identical 
with the wording of Sections 3984 to 3998, which were 
included in the Code of 1922 and which were repealed 
on May 12th, 1930, page 2930 of the Proceedings of 
that date. 

A letter together with the draft of an ordinance to 
repeal Sections 2143 to 2157 was submitted to the 
City Council by the Corporation Counsel, which in 
turn was referred to the Judiciary Committee of the 
Council on December 1st, 1931, page 1312 of the 
Council Proceedings of that date, reported back to 
the Council by the Judiciary Committee and then 
referred to the Committee on Finance by the Council 
on December 16th, 1931, page 1517 of the Proceedings 
of that date. 

The annual license fee to be charged and paid to 
the City for each public cart owned, kept, rented and 
operated, or caused to be operated, or rented for hire 
or reward by any person, firm or corporation acting 
as a public carter, under the said ordinances, is fixed 
as follows for each vehicle : 

Horse Drmvn Vehicles: 

Public Cart, horse drawn, one horse $ 2.50 

Public Cart, horse drawn, two horses 5.00 

Public Cart, horse drawn, three horses .... 7.50 

Public Cart, horse drawn, four horses .... lO.OO 

Public Cart, horse drawn, six horses 12.50

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

Automobiles, Auto Trucks, Auto Cars, Auto 
Furniture Vans: 

Capacity of vehicle not exceeding two tons. .$ 7.50 
Capacity of vehicle more than 2 but not over 

3 tons 10.00 

Capacity of vehicle more than 3 but not over 

4 tons 12.00 

Capacity of vehicle exceeding 4 tons 15.00 

The records of the City Collector's oflfice show that 
during the year 1935 there were 3090 wheel tax 
licenses issued for one horse carts and 386 issued for 
two horse carts; that during the year 1932 there were 
53,694 Chicago Vehicle Stickers issued for trucks; 
48,343 issued during 1933; 53,354 issued during 1934 
and 61,934 issued during 1935. Assuming that there 
will be as many issued for the current year as were 
issued during last year and that approximately one- 
half that number would be subject to licensing under 
the public cart ordinance at an average fee of $10.00 
each, this would mean additional revenue to the City 
of about $300,000. Also the licensing by the city of 
30,000 drivers who operate these trucks, at a fee of 
$5.00 per annum each, would provide additional rev- 
enue of $150,000. Thus the enforcement of the public 
cart ordinance would provide a total revenue to the 
City of approximately $450,000.00 per annum. Be- 
cause of the questionable legality of this public cart 
ordinance, the same is not being enforced. It is 
therefore respectfully recommended that your Hon- 
orable Body take such action as is necessary to 
clarify this situation. 

I give you below a summary of the revenue which 
would accrue to the City as the result of the passage 
of an ordinance licensing livery and funeral cars and 
the enforcement of the public cart ordinance: 

3090 public carts, 1 horse (the number 
for which wheel tax stickers were 
issued during 1935) at $2.50 each...$ 7,725.00 

386 public carts, 2 horse (the number 
for which wheel tax stickers were 
issued during 1935) at $5.00 each... 1.930.0O 

30,000 auto trucks at an average fee of 

$10.00 each 300,000.00 

30,000 chauffeurs at $5.00 each 150,000.00 

1200 livery and funeral cars at $25.00 
each per annum 30,000.00 

1000 chautfeurs on livery and funeral 
cars at $5.00 each 5,000.00 



$494,655.00 



During the early part of 1935 this Commission re- 
ceived numerous complaints from citizens and civic 
organizations concerning the conduct of colored taxi- 
cab operators on South Parkway and Michigan ave- 
nue; that they operated in utter disregard for the 
safety of the lives and property of others and viola- 
tions of traffic laws and ordinances were common 
occurrences. This Commission with the assistance of 
the members of the Vehicle Division of the Police 
Department inaugurated a vigorous campaign to 
correct these conditions. Meetings of the chauffeurs 
and the taxicab owners were held at the instigation 
of the Commission and they pledged their whole- 
hearted co-operation in our campaign to correct this 
evil. The Police squads of the Vehicle Division con- 
tinually patrolled the district in question and arrests 
were made in every case where drivers were observed 
operating their cabs in a reckless and wanton man- 
ner. The Municipal Court Judges before whom these 



cases were tried were acquainted with the conditions 
on the south side, and through their co-operation 
very gratifying results were obtained. At the present 
time there is a decided improvement in conditions in 
this colored area as is evidenced by letters ot com- 
mendation received from various colored business 
men's organizations in that district. 

In this connection, I wish to express my sincere 
appreciation of the splendid co-operation given this 
Commission by Commissioner of Police James P. 
Allman, whose officers of the Vehicle Division, work- 
ing in conjunction with this Commission, have ren- 
dered an indispensable service during the past year 
in all matters with which we have been confronted 
involving violations of the laws governing the opera- 
tion of public passenger vehicles. The vast experience 
with and practical knowledge of all matters pertain- 
ing to the operation of public passenger vehicles has 
been of valuable assistance to this Commission in its 
efficient conduct of office. 

In compliance with an ordinance passed by your 
Honorable Body on October 30th, 1935, this Commis- 
sion is charged with the semi-annual inspection of 
all automobiles owned or operated by residents of 
the City of Chicago, for the purpose of determining 
whether these vehicles, their parts and accessories, 
conform in all respects with the standard for safe 
operation of motor vehicles on public highways re- 
quired by the ordinances of the City and by the 
Statutes of the State. We believe that the strict en- 
forcement of this ordinance will materially decrease 
the number of automobile accidents in Chicago. It 
is the foremost step that could possibly be taken to 
assist Mayor Kelly in his Safety Campaign to reduce 
automobile accidents by ridding the streets of auto- 
mobiles with defective brakes, headlights, steering 
apparatus and other defects, all of which are con- 
tributing factors in the cause of accidents. Prepara- 
tions are now under way for the inspection of these 
automobiles beginning July 1st, 1936. 



Respectfully submitted.

Thomas S. Gordon, 

Commissioner.

I 

To I lie Honorable, the Cily Council of the Cily of 
Chicago: 

Gkn'h.emen — Next year will mark the hundrtidth 
anniversary of the incorporation of the City of Chi- 
cago. 

As Mayor of Chicago, I deem it fitting that a pro- 
gram of municipal celebration be launched to observe 
this anniversary. 

Every citizen of Chicago, the highest and the hum- 
blest, surely takes pride in the greatness of our city. 
Although extremely young in comparison with other 
cities of the world, Chicago in one hundred years 
ranks among the great metropolitan centers. Only 
one other city in the United States is larger than our 
community. Surely the strides which Chicago has 
made since 1837, when our city was scarcely more 
than a backwood's settlement with a population of less 
than 5,000 persons, to the second largest city of our 
nation, with a population of more than 3,375,000 per- 
sons, is an achievement which calls for civic ob- 
servance. 

I believe that every patriotic Chicagoan will ap- 
prove the present planning of an extensive civic pro- 
gram during 1937 to suitably mark our one hundredth 
anniversary of incorporation. I believe also that 
many persons who formerly resided in Chicago, and 
still look upon Chicago as their home although they 
are now in other parts of the globe, would also wish 
to join some definite phase of such an observance. 

There is, of course, precedent for holding Chicago 
celebrations to mark civic achievement. I believe 
that the value of such civic celebrations, both for in- 
stilling greater civic patriotism in our citizens and for 
commercial benefits, is unquestionable. The Century • 
of Progress Exposition, which celebrated the settle- 
ment of the Town of Chicago, was of untold benefit 
to our city, to the whole metropolitan area, and even 
to our entire country. The same can be said in degree 
for such activities of recent years as the Keep Chicago 
Ahead movement, the Drama of Chicago on Parade, 
and Chicago Homecoming Week. Through such ac- 
tivities the real spirit of Chicago is properly por- 
trayed to the world. Better citizenship, resulting 
from increased pride in Chicago's achievements, 
grows out of such events. 

It is my suggestion that your honorable body des- 
ignate the year 1937 as an official year of celebration, 
and that the Mayor of Chicago, in cooperation with 
the City Council, be authorized to name a committee 
or committees of representative citizens, men and 
women who will represent every part of our civic 
life, business and labor, our various communities, the 
professions, education, and our various cultural and 
spiritual interests, which go to make up our Chicago. 
Interest on the part of citizens in civic affairs, to- 
gether with pride in our city, cannot but help re- 
dound to a better Chicago. I believe that a celebration 
which will have this end as its goal will be exceed- 
ingly worth while.

Very truly yours,

Kelly, 
Mayor. 



Unanimous consent was given tO' permit action on the 
resolution submitted with the foregoing communication 
without reference thereof to a committee. 

Alderman Arvey moved to adopt the resolution. 

The motion prevailed unanimously. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The City of Chicago as a municipal 
corporation came into being in the year 1837; and 

Whereas, The year 1937 will mark the hundredth 
anniversary of this incorporation, of Chicago as a 
municipality, this hundred-year period witnessing 
the growth of Chicago from a pioneering settlement of 
less than five thousand citizens to the second largest 
city of our nation and one of the very great cities of 
the world; and 

Whereas, It is fitting that the City of Chicago 
should observe its hundredth anniversary as a mu- 
nicipal corporation in a manner that will demonstrate 
to the world the true spirit of Chicago and inculcate 
into its citizens greater pride in the achievements of 
our city; therefore be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago herewith endorses and authorizes the designa- 
tion of the year 1937 for an official celebration of 
the hundredth anniversary of the City of Chicago; 
and be it further 

Resolved, That the Mayor of Chicago is herewith 
authorized to appoint a committee or committees of 
Chicago citizens, such committees to represent busi- 
ness, labor, the professions, our cultural and spiritual 
interests, and the various communities which make 
up Chicago, and to take such other steps as he may 
consider necessary to the end that the anniversary 
celebration may be properly directed and enlist the 
co-operation of all Chicago.
